July 2022 Reading Wrap Up | Books I Read in July 2022!

July 2022 was the month of many changes for me. From getting news of having to move countries to yet again coming down with COVID to packing up in 3 days for the move to having a cracker of a reading month as I went through all of this – this is just a gist of how July 2022 went. There’s so much I want to share with you – videos I have in the works, blog posts I am planning to write, plans I have for my channel, the books I brought with me in the move – but all in good time. They are brewing but meanwhile, I’m here to talk about my July 2022 reading wrap up.

Recent Reads – July 2022 Edition!

After a disastrous start to the year, I’m beginning to think that I’m now slowly getting my reading mojo back, if my recent reads are anything to go by. I found a couple of favorites, one of which I’ve been raving about almost everywhere, mostly in my Favorite Authors and the Mid Year Book Freakout Tag videos. I’m still going to be a little cautious, though, because I don’t want to jinx it in any way or form. I know what could happen and I’m super wary of it.
In today’s blog post, I’ll be talking about my May 2022 and June 2022 reading wrap ups. I read 9 books in each of these months and given how I’ve given up on TBRs and also on bothering about the number of books I need to read, it went pretty well. Buckle up for a LONG blog post!

Anti Book Recommendations | The Worst Books I’ve Ever Read!

This list contains some of the worst books I’ve ever read. For this, too, I will give out a disclaimer: These are my opinions and mine alone. If there’s a book on this list that you love, it is not meant to be a personal attack. Everybody has a different taste and a way of interpretation and I hope this will be respected. 🙂

In Other Words by Jhumpa Lahiri and its Themes | Book Discussion

When I read Jhumpa Lahiri’s memoir, In Other Words, in which she shares her journey of learning Italian, it was as if she was echoing my deepest, darkest fears. With the themes she tackles throughout the book, of immigration, of even sexism and colorism, she brings so many relatable concepts to the fore. Because when you start learning a new language, you not only discover how the different parts of the world are different. You also learn more about yourself, the grit and determination that constitute you, what your actual goals are, what you want to do with life, where you want to be at any given moment in time, and why you want to do whatever it is you want to do.

Best Reread Worthy Books | Books You Can Read Over and Over Again!

Bookworms have unending TBRs or to-be-read lists, and that’s a given. But sometimes, all we want to do is give up the quest for the perfect new book and go back to books we’ve read and loved before. There could be multiple reasons for this. Maybe we find comfort. Maybe we just love the language. Maybe we relate to them. Maybe we’ve found solutions to our problems in them. Maybe we love the characters like we love our own family – you know that’s a possibility. A lot of maybes, really.

Recent Reads – April 2022 Edition!

Ever since I started my BookTube channel, I’ve been pretty consistent with posting wrap up videos. But due to what’s been going on in my life this year, I missed out on posting wrap up videos and blog posts for the first three months. To make up for it, in today’s Recent Reads blog post, I will be talking (in short) about the books I read in the month of January, February, and March 2022 – a consolidated wrap up post of sorts.

All the Books on My TBR – 2022 Edition | More Than 520 Books!

I did a post like this last year where I listed out all the 470+ books that I had on my TBR. I had hoped that by the time 2021 ended, I would have brought the number down to 400. Instead, it’s exploded to more than 520 books and I’m looking at the list, aghast and surprised, as if I had no hand in adding these books to my TBR. But I’m glad I have these books because some of them, I’m really excited to read, and some others’, I got at amazing deals. So either way, let me tell you, I’m the winner, hah! 😛

Worst Books of 2021 | Books I Didn’t Like or Was Disappointed With

Welcome to the last in my 2021 wrap up videos in which I talk about the books that I wasn’t happy with in 2021. There are 10 books in here, in chronological order as and when I read them. Let me know in the comments what you think of them and if this post helps you decide whether to pick them or stay away from them. Let’s go!

My Favorite Books of 2021 – Part 2!

Hello and welcome to part 2 of my favorite books of 2021 blog post! I split this into two parts because there are about 25 books on this list. Since I don’t like to keep things hanging, here we go with part 2. There are 11 books in here, and some of these are just *chef’s kiss*. If you haven’t read them already, I’d highly recommend you do because they’re some of the most amazing books I’ve read in 2021 as well as of all time! Let’s go!

My Favorite Books of 2021 – Part 1!

Next in my 2021 wrap up blog posts is my favorite books of 2021 list. This is one list that I usually have too much fun making but also am so conflicted by because I just can’t seem to choose. But last year, I adopted a practice where every time I loved a book, I’d automatically add it to a ‘Best Books of 2021’ worksheet in my book list workbook. It’s another matter altogether that end of the year me kind of cussed my past self out for putting the burden on her, but we ended up here. So that’s good, I think? 😛
